Former Sudbury track coach David Case has been found guilty of sexual assault for the second time this month.

He was convicted of one count of sexual assault, one count of assault causing bodily harm and one count of assault concerning a female athlete in the mid-1980s to early 1990s.

The guilty verdict was delivered Friday morning, although it has been scheduled for 2 p.m. Justice Alexander Kurke said Case forcibly had sex with one of his teenage runners at a hotel in the 1980s and physically assaulted her twice after a secret marriage once she turned 18.

He was found not guilty of two other alleged sexual assaults against the same woman.

A court hearing to determine sentencing will take place March 17.

In a separate case involving an incident in 2011 with a different woman, Case was found guilty March 5 of sexual assault by aiding and abetting.

One of his former athletes who was co-accused, Celine Loyer, was also found guilty of sexual assault in that case.

A date for sentencing will set March 17.
